The Canadian Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (CNETS) is committed to improving the quality of life and survival for NET patients across Canada and in support of this vision introduced a new Research Funding Framework in 2016.
The 2019 NET Research Grant will provide grant-in-aid for THREE projects up to a maximum of $40,000 per project.
The third NET Research Grant was made possible thanks to the tremendous fundraising efforts of Bailey and Jonathan Daniels. In their honor, this NET research grant will be named The Daniels Constellation Grant for Neuroendocrine Cancer Research. The NET research funding priorities were determined through consultation with the NET patient community, and input from CNETS Scientific and Medical Advisory Board (SMAB).
